When most people think of mermaids, they think of scaly tails and seashell bras where as I think of soft pastel colors, delicate lace, ruffles, and shimmering pearls. These unconventional thoughts all stem from Chanel and Versace's Spring 2012 shows. Although these shows were on the runway almost 2 years ago, I can't help but think back to their whimsical charm and simplicity ever so often. Obviously these sirens of the sea weren't first introduced to fashion world in these particular shows, but this was the first time they were haloed in a more subtle way. Both shows demonstrated underwater luxury through minimalist sea-themed looks. I've been using the fresh ocean palette in a lot of my outfits recently, and thought I'd share it with you. Hopefully this post will refresh your memory of the fabulous underwater style that both Karl Lagerfeld and Donna Versace shared with us a few seasons back.
And of course, each show had their own covetable ocean-themed bag!
